Environment day at Hatfield

ECOLOGICAL exhibitors and experts will fill a Hatfield shopping outlet today (Friday).

Celebrating the UN’s World Environment Day, the Galleria is hosting Your Life, Your Home, Your World.

The free event, organised by the not-for-profit organisation Environmental Population, is aiming to get residents to “think global and act local by building eco living into your every day”.

Running from 10am to 4pm at the Comet Way centre will be split into separate sections, each with industry experts offering eco ideas, information and hints and tips.

The Your Life Zone will focus on day-to-day living; from fashion to food and fitness, cars to bikes and travel planning as well as eco communities, charities and schools. And watch out for the ‘Don’t Do The Dodo’!

In the Your Home Zone you’ll find everything you need to transform your dwelling from energy saving products, heating and lighting, and interior design to eco architects, builders, gardening and even planning.

Don’t miss ‘The Cube – The Film’ showing a three metre cubed sustainable living space created by the University of Hertfordshire.
